I've Been Adopted!

20 NOVEMBER 2014: About a year ago, Mollie was diagnosed with Cushing's disease which is a disease of the adrenal gland.  Although, there is no cure, Mollie has responded very well to daily medication.  At her last vet check up, the vet commented that Mollie was the healthiest Cushings patient, he had ever seen!  Yay!  Mollie is easy to live with, and when she wants something, she lets you know.  Her bark is famous in the neighborhood!  She loves being with her dog friends and pretty much ignores cats.  The children in the neighborhood like to greet her and she lets them pet her – until her nose catch some good smell and she is ready to go again.

28 MARCH 2014: Mollie is still searching for her forever home, but she is very comfortable in her foster home for now. The report that came with her new photo was that she seemed to be saying, "Forget the snow. I'm in my spot again!"

Update 2: Quick update from Mollie's foster mom: Lubby dubby. Kissy, kissy.  Mollie has become a very affectionate dog over the past few weeks.  She has a lot of love and happy companionship to give.  You could be the object of her affection!

Update 1: She is wary of the vacuum, but was brave enough to go up and nip it!

Summer 2012: Mollie was well cared for by her previous owner.  Unfortunately,  she couldn't keep her when she went into assisted living.  Mollie is very sweet and very good company.  She wants to be where I am and she is always ready to go for a walk.  She lets me know when she wants to go out for a walk or needs to go out back for a bathroom break by being vocal.   After our morning walk, she can tell when I am ready to leave for work.  She very politely goes to sit in her crate and waits for her treat.  She stays in a crate during the day for up to eight hours.  When I get home, she greets me with barking and howling to let me know it is time to take her for a walk!  She goes in the car very well and has stayed with me at my Mother's house on the weekend sometimes.  She does have some anxiety if I have to leave her there to run an errand for my Mother and always greets me heartily when I return.  She lets me know when someone is close to the house.

    I am interested in Molly. I put my 17yr Beagle mix down last May, she had nasal and bladder cancer. She was my heart! Molly reminds me of Tiffany alot!! I am looking for an older Beagle. I am wondering how she would do in my household….I have a 10yr ADHD son who is very active but sweet, a 2yr cat named Harley, and a 2yr grandson that visits often. I also have a vacuum!!

      Hi, Virginia – so very sorry to hear of Tiffany’s passing. Mollie has been in her foster home for quite a while, and I am not sure if she has spent much time with kids or any time with cats. I’ve contacted Mollie’s foster mom to see if she can provide more information. Thank you for your interest in adopting a BREW beagle!

    Hi
    How is Mollie? Do you know if she likes cats? Thanks, Mac

    Oh my, dear Mollie ~ I hope your days are filled with love and that you can adopt someone for whom you can be their companion and guardian.

    Paws crossed for Mollie at the upcoming adoption event. There is nothing like a mature, senior beagle – they have so much love to give. I know there is someone out there for her – someone who will realize that Mollie is the beagle gal they have been waiting for.

    We would be very interested in Mollie. When we moved to Virginia, we had an ancient beagle that came with the house. Grandma Sandy (she was a single sand color) needed a lot of work. She survived every worm known to dog, including heart worm, surgery for a vaginal tumor bigger than a melon, and then spaying late in life. She was a happy girl, wagged at everyone. Unfortunately, we had to put her down last fall, after 7 years with us. Our vet figured that she was 18 or 19. We have a 4 year old daughter and two Jack Russell’s. Max is 15 and foxy is 6. a fenced yard with a dog door. If she is still available, we would be interested in filling out an application.

      Karen, I am so sorry to hear of Sandy’s passing. She sounded like she had a wonderful life with you. We would love it if you were to submit an adoption application for Mollie. She’s such a great beagie! Please let me know if you have any questions and we look forward to helping you find a beagle companion.

    Mollie sounds absolutely delightful and is just beautiful. She is certainly ready to go to her forever home – love the part about the vacuum (my beagles hide under the bed). Hope she finds her new home soon so she can settle down into her new life.
